The Death of President McKinley—Theodore Roosevelt
Sworn in as  President.
William McKinley, one of the gre;
Presidents the American Republic has
ever known, is dead. After hope had
been held out for his recoveiy, a sudden
change for the worse took place, and al
2:15 a.m. on Saturday morning, he final'
ly succumbed to the terrible injuries inflicted by the bullets of the assassin.
His faithful wife was beside him at the
last movement, and the dying President'
devoted his last conscious hour to c
forting her.
U^-The President in his last period of c
sciousness, which ended about 7:40"
o'clock, chanted the words of the beanti
ful hymn,
" NEARER MY GOD TO THEE,"
and his last audible conscious words a
taken down by Dr. Mann at the bedsidi
were, " Good bye, all, good bye. It i
God's way ; His will be done."
Then his mind began to wander, and
soon afterward he completely lost
The President's will leaves mos t of hi
property to Mrs. McKinley.
Vice-President Roosevelt was sworn i
the day after McKinley's death.
A death mask of the President's face
The rage of the people of Buffalo'
against the President's assassin, when
they learned to-day that he was dead,!
was boundless. Thousands surrounded
the jail, and the police force of the city
and two regiments of soldiers were necessary to secure his protection.
The remains, lay in state at Buffalo yesterday, and thousands of people took the
opportunity of having a last glimpse of J
the man they had honored.
The funeral was arranged to take place!
at Washington   on   Thursday, the   19th
Memorial sevvices were held all ovei

—       S
Drilling   Outfit   to   Test   the
Local Coal Mea-
Word was received the past   week   by
Arthur Hickling, managing  director  of
the Vermilion Forks Mining & Develop
tnent Company, that the  drilling  outfit
liad been shipped from the   manufactory
at Terrytown N. Y.   It should arriv

:he same time an expert   driller   in
smploy of  the Davis-Callyx   Drill   Co.
will leave Idaho to superintend the   bor-
ng operations at the company's mine. ■
The machinery ordered consists  of  1
:lass F. drill, for drilling a $% >ncl> hol(
:o a depth of 300 feet,   producing a   2^
inch core.   A 7 h.p. vertical engine; an !
h.p. horizontal locomotive boiler; pumps

itfit h-js a total weight of 6,000

thoroughly up-to-date  plant, and being
portable, can  be moved from  plac
with comparative ease.
: " Early in   October work will be
turned at the coal mine," said Mr. Hick-
ing, " when a thorough prospecting
the coal measures will be made at depth
by drilling.   For some time past the di
rectors felt the necessity of purchasing
drilling   outfit, and   after  considerable
respondence with   different   maker
placed the order with the Davis-Ca
lyx   Drilling   Co'y of  Terrytown, N. Y.
By the time the machinery reaches here,
ipresentative of the company,
Idato, will be on hand to superintend
the work.   After we get   through   prospecting our  coal leases, we   hope
range for custom work on other lat
fact, the necessity of such a plant  i
district   is   already apparent, and   there
will be plenty to do once operations s
Should other coal seams be found
depth, I look forward to genuine revi*
will awaken an interest on the o
side  towards  the coal   measures of the
Similkameen.   Capital   is   needed,   but
1 local owners go to work to devel-
and prove what they have got, I see
little chance for money coming in. It is
fallacy to think that the mere staking of
thousands of acres of presumably coal
land for speculative purposes, is going to
attract capital. The mines have got to
be opened and the coal tested—this
propose to do," he concluded.

THE POLITICAL SITUATION.
The Hon. J. C. Brown is meeting with
ost determined opposition in New West-
inster. Smith Curtis, Richard McBride, and some 13 members of the legislature have visited the city and used their
nfluence against the election of Mr.
Brown as a member of the Dunsmuir
tnent. Denis Murphy, the member for our own district is supporting Mr.
McBride in the stand he has taken.
mly a matter of time now until
the Dunsmuir administration have to
step down and out.
Twenty-four members out of 38 have
declared themselves as opposed  to the
Dunsmuir combination,
stums   have been   received   from
the  Westminster  election, which took
place on the 18th.
The bye-election in Victoria to fill the
at rendered vacant by Mr.   Turner  re-
signing must take  place   shortly.*' ' Whb>"'~
the candidates will be is not yet known.
Later.—A telegram received via the
Hope trail yesterday afternoon, announc-
the defeat ofj. C. Brown in the West-
inster election  by 52 votes.   The successful candidate is Mr. jH^jfford, the
well knownJe-ijMller of New Westmins-
Mr. Brown was supposed  to be al-
sure of election as he had a cabinet
position, the Westminster bridge and a
lajority of 88 votes in the last election,
1 his favour.   The people are evidently
thoroughly disgusted with the Martin-
Dunsmuir combination however, and Mr.
is elected to stay at home.   The
Dunsmuir Cabinet is now shy two minis-
th   no   possible   show of  filling
either portfolio, as the result of the Westminster election already voices the senti-
nent   of  the   people.     Therefore   Mr.
Dunsmuir must resign !
In Princeton the news gives universal
latisfaction. " Some chance of getting a
railroad now," is the expression on every
side. A good deal of speculation is being indulged in as to who will be called
form a cabinet. It is generally
thought here, that Smith Curtis and
Richard McBride will unite their forces,
and that a ministry will be selected from
the following members of the Legisla-
Messrs. Curtis, McBride, Tatlow,
McPhillips, Murphy, Green and Neill.
SAFEGUAEDING THE BEIDGE.
Government agent Hugh Hunter, at
he request of the townsite company, had
,n immense amount of drift wood,
thrown up on the bars of the_ Similka-
mgen river, burnt up on Wednesday.
rne townsite company, until the govern-
; takes over the bridge is responsible
for its maintanence, and Mr. Arthur
Hickling firmly believes in the old adage
"stitch in time," etc. By clearing
the river it will be free from all ice
jams the coming winter. The Townsite
Company; has also arranged with E.
Barr Hall to reinforce the supports to the
bridge on the south side by building new
ibutments.

Our American cousins expressed
a volume of love and sympathy for
the British Nation when the hand
of Providence called our good
Queen Victoria to her last long test.
Now the people of the great republic are sorrowing for the death
of one of the greatest Presidents
they have ever known, and all over
ourEr
timely
at hi:
d a genuine feeling of
sorrow and distress for America's
irreparable loss, is freely expressed.
The news that J. C. Brown has
been defeated' by a majority of 52
votes in the Westminster bye-election, means a great ,deal for the
Similkameen country. Premier
Dunsmuir must resign his leadership, and the strong opposition to
the Coast-Boundary Railway
be removed. The governnv
which will take the place ofthe
Dunsmuir-Martin combination will
have as its most important plank,
the immediate construction of the
railway, which will start the growth
and development of our entire country.
The people of Princeton and the
Similkameen district are delighted
to hear of the stand their member,
has taken in the present parliamentary crisis. We had always hoped
that Denis would break away from
the Dunsmuir forces, and now that
he has done so, we hope he will
maintain a sturdy and independent
attitude and keep before him the
• crying necessity of our district—a
railroad. You need have no fear
in asking Princeton to support you
Denis if you follow the principals
which you now seem to be advocating. Keep it up! and don't be
afraid to let your voice be heard in
the land.
The Colony of NewSouth Wales
furnishes a splendid example of what
can be done by an enterprising
Mining Department, with acapabli
Minister in charge, towards adverti
sing the resources ofthe country.
All statistics for the year end
June 30th, are obtained by
department, including the I
est particulars of total out
gross value, values of different
tals and coal, in much the same
manner as our own department of
mines follow in obtaining the
necessary information for the publication of the annual report. But
what a difference in making use of
the information. On July 15th or
exactly 15 days later, the   leading
and Europe published a cable report giving a condensed synopris of
the particulars obtained. In British Columbia the Minister ot Mines
takes FIVE MONTHS to produce
his report. If the example of New
South Wales was followed a cable
could be sent to the provincial representative in London, giving the
necessary particulars and from that
point it would be an easy matter to
reach the leading papers. This
may be a small thing in itself, but
straws show which way the wind
blows. Enterprise in handling the
most important industry we possess,
is the first thing which will attract
capital to what if properly fostered
will be the greatest mining country
in the world.

Eg-rnest Waterman that the triangle
piece of land at the junction of Vermilion Avenue and Bridge Street,

would be an ideal place for the
erection of a bar/a stand, at some
future date. Meanwhile the clearing and fencing in of this plot will
improve the appearance of both

Mr/John Meiklejohn for his prosed townsite at the lfeadwaters of
20 and 16 mile creeks. The future
city is located in the heart of one of
the best mineralized portions of the
Similkameen, and when opened up
will provide a payroll, assuring to
Carnegie a prosperous future.
Good luck to you John in the promotion ofthe Carnegie Townsite
Syndicate,
The first complete drilling outfit
for prospecting the local coal measures at depth will be in operation
early in October. The machinery
is now en route to Princeton and its
arrival will mark a new era in   the
development of the black diamond.
The enterprise of the Vermilion
Forks Mining & Development Company is commendable as the plant
is for custom work, as well as for
use in exploiting the company'sown
extensive holdings.
The lamented death of William
McKinley, president, of the United States, the third chief executive
to fall at the hand of an assasin will
doubtless stir the citizens of the
neighboring Republic to the inauguration of a crusade having for its
object the total extermination of
that hedious vampire of society
called the anarchist. As the initial
movement Leon Czolgosse the diabolical murderer should be hanged.

High mountains, where Old Nature

In aeons past a precious hoard
Beside the winding Similkameen.
Bold seekers after treasure came
With daring hearts and ready hands,
(Obedient unto Hope's commands)
A share of Nature's wealth to claim.
By force they pierce the aged hills
And show their hidden  riches forth—
While from the East, and West, and North,
The new-born land of promise fills.
A road ! A road ! The people cry :
To make our country rich  and great!
"I fear you'll simply have to wait,"
The Dunsmuir dummy-heads reply.
" The C.P.R. is not prepared
To bnild the road at once you see,
And WE don't like the V. V. E.
For reasons we have not declared."

As tools for corporation greed.!'

 THE    SIMILKAMEEN    STAR
A BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH
Murdered    President   of   the
United   States of
America.
William McKinley, the ass
President of the United States, was born
at Niles, Trumbull County, Ohio, Janu
ary 29, 1843. His ancestors, of sturdy
Scotch-Irish stock, lived in Pennsylvania, whence they emigrated from Scotland fully 200 years ago. His grandfather, Daniel McKinley, was a soldier in the
revolution, distinguished for gallantry at
Brandywine, Germantown and Monmouth. His father was an industrious,
sensible and prosperous iron manufacturer, who died in 1892 at the age of 85 ;
his mother is still living at Canton. Ohio,
at the advanced age of 87. Young McKinley was educated at the public
schools and at the Poland (Mahoning
County) academy, and attended for a
-short time the Methodist college at
Meadville, Pa.
In June, 1861, he enlisted in the Twenty-third Ohio volunteer infantry as a
private soldier. On September 24, 1862,
he was promoted to second lieutenant;
on February 7, 1863, to first lieutenant;
on July 25, 1864, to captain, and was bre-
vetted major by President Lincoln for
gallant and meritorious services al
battles of Opequan, Fisher's Hill
Cedar Creek. He served on the staff of
ex-President Hayes and Major-General
George Crook, and after Crook's capture,
he served for a time on the staff of Major-
General Hancock, and subsequently on
the staff of General Samuel S. Carroll.
He was with the famous Twenty-third in
all its battles, and was mustered out with
it on July 26, 1865. He had a liking for
the military profession, and it was said
that but for the advice of his father he
would have attached himself to the regu-
. At the close of the war McKinley returned to Ohio, studied law, opened an
office in Canton, Stark County, in 1867,
and in 1869 was elected prosecuting attorney of Stark County.
He was elected to Congress in 1876, and
served continuously in the house of re
presentatives until March 1891—14 years
in all—except part of his fourth term,
when he was unseated late in the first
session.
In November, 1891, he was elected
Governor of the State of Ohio by a handsome majority, and was renominated by
acclamation in 1893.
He was nominated for president of the
United States at the national republican
convention at St. Louis, June 18, 1896,
receiving 661 out of a total of 905 votes.
He was elected in November, 1896 by
a popular plurality of 600,000 votes, and
received 271 electoral votes against 176
for William Jennings Bryan.
June 20, 1900, at Philadelphia he was
renominated for President, and in.November was reelected. His popular vote
over Bryan was 849,455, and over all was
446,718. He received 292 votes of the
electoral college, as against 155 for William Jennings Bryan.
While holding a reception in the Tem
ple of Music at the Pan-American Exposition on the eixth instant, he was shot
twice by Leon Czolgosse, an anarchist.
His death was planned with all the diabolical ingenuity and finesse of which
anarchy or . nihilism is capable. Notwithstanding all that medical science
could do, he passed away last Saturday.
v/   ANOTHEB TOWNSITE.
, * John Meikljohn, a mining engineer of
Greenwood, is promoting the Carnegie
Townsite Syndicate to acquire 320 acres
of land, situated near Chain lakes, at the
headwaters of 20-Mile and 16-Mijrcreeks,
in the Osoyoos mining division. The
new townsite is in the heart ^f one of the
best mineralized sections of the Similkameen district. Within a radius of a few
miles are Riordan . and Red mountains,
both having large showings of copper
sulphide ore: Camp Hedley with its famous Nickel Plate mine, the most extensively developed property in the whole
district; Yuneman's camp, noted for its
deposits of magnetite, carrying coarse
free gold, and Apex-Summit camp, where
much work has been done the past sea-
The site selected is a slightly undulating park-like tract, and Chain lakes will
supply an abundance of water. Passing
the northern end of this tract is the Nickle Plate-Penticton wagon road, so that
easy access to and from the nearest shipping point is already provided. Mr.
Meiklejohn is a firm believer in the future of the Similkameen, and through
his untiring efforts on behalf of the district, he has been instrumental iu inducing  much   capital   to seek
